Tata Chemicals’ Haldia plant will remain shut from February 21, 2017 to April 15, 2017 on account of ammonia pipeline relocating project hook up and commissioning, along with annual shutdown of the plant for planned repair and maintenance work. The said plant manufactures DAP (Diammonium phosphate), SSP (Single superphosphate) and complex NPK (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium) fertilisers wherein ammonia is used as one of the feedstock. The company in April last year had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Sanjana Cryogenics Storage (SCSL), its ammonia terminal operator, for rerouting a portion of the ammonia pipeline that runs from Haldia Dock to ammonia storage tank.
A part of the over $100 billion Tata Group, Tata Chemicals is a global company with interests in businesses that focus on essentials for LIFE (Living, Industry and Farm Essentials). The story of the company is about harnessing the fruits of science for goals that go beyond business.
